Happy Birthday, Queen's!
The Things We Left Behind
"My final film of Queen's consists of over 1500 photos of photos from the Queen's Archives and some amazing work from some amazing people. I hope that you'll be able to see the places you are in as part of a history of people, events, and stories that may be unknown to you, but existed for someone else."

The Global Oil Thigh
In honour of Queen's 175th, the Alumni Association asked alumni to send in their Oil Thigh videos. And they did! We received videos from all around the world, including Hong Kong, the French Alps, and Sydney, Australia. The videos featured alumni young and old (and some future alumni!), as well as some familiar campus faces. Learn more: Global Oil Thigh...
We Are the Gaels
Directed by Ryan Lee, Arts'16 (Film and Media / Math)
"We Are the Gaels was a personal project that sparked from the immense spirit of the Queens community. Over the last 175 years, hundreds of thousands of people have walked through the same halls and streets, laughed together, watched football games together, experienced the tradition and the bond that forms making us a family.
Having made this in my second year, I was inspired by the sights of Homecoming and Frosh Week in my first, and wanted to create a visual imprint that I, my fellow students and, now, my fellow alum and the staff who shaped us, could look back on and cherish.
I walked/biked/ran around campus with my camera and captured what I believed would tell this story. Editing was the more daunting of tasks – having spent on average 40min/second of finished video – it took me just over 81 hours to complete.
My hope is that this video will remain a representation of the times we have shared, unite current students and alum, and remind us that we are the Gaels."
